CBS RADIO MYSTERY THEATER disk 2




The CBS Radio Mystery indeed heralded the revival of the Golden Age of Radio.
With the fine actor E. G. Marshall as the host, the series brought
back those great days of mystery, suspense, drama and a touch of history. At
first it aired daily, a monumental task when you consider this. But after some
six years it went to five times a week. Mr. Marshall hosted the series
until its final year when Tammy Grimes took over the chore on Feb 1, 1982.
For the most part long-time radio personalities were heard with a smattering
of TV and movie actors doing their part. Almost all of the story lines were
newly written and produced, but there were some adaptions based on novels by
Edgar Allan Poe, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Charles Dickens, Victor Hugo, O.
Henry, Nathaniel Hawthorne to name a few. The end of the series came quite
quickly in early December 1982 with re-runs filling in the balance of the
year.

Subject: CBS R.M.T worth a listen
I have worked my way through all the radio mystery theatre episodes and would advise anyone to give them a listen. Some of them are a bit dodgy sound wise but on the whole they are really enjoyable.
